Bug#72143: base: perllocal.pod in wrong directory

Package: base
Version: 20000921
Severity: wishlist

-- System Information
Debian Release: 2.2
Kernel Version: Linux main 2.2.15 #2 Wed May 31 15:52:26 MDT 2000 i586 unknown

I believe this sort of follows up on Bug #67231 (perl path problem
for locally installed modules).  If I as a user are a member of group
staff, and go to install CPAN modules in /usr/local (where people
in group staff have write permission), all installs fail because
an ordinary user does not have permission to write (actually append)
to the perllocal.pod file in /usr/lib.  If perllocal.pod is supposed
to contain information on LOCALLY INSTALLED perl modules, it should
properly be located in /usr/local, and writable by people in group
